Know the signs of malpractice: Although Texas has very strict laws to protect healthcare workers and facilities, when a doctor commits malpractice, it is necessary to know the signs of medical negligence. One sign of doctor malpractice is the doctor’s failure to inform you about a medical problem. Doctors should offer information explaining the benefits and drawbacks of any treatments. They should also provide an opportunity for you to ask questions about your diagnosis and treatment plan. The doctor may not follow accepted protocols for diagnosis and treatment, delay in diagnosis and treatment, incomplete or incorrect diagnoses, and unnecessary tests and procedures. The doctor’s lack of informed consent for necessary procedures may also be a sign that he or she does not have a doctor-patient relationship with you.
Understand your legal rights as a victim of malpractice: If you’re a victim of doctor malpractice, do not be afraid to speak up! Victims of doctor malpractice have legal rights that they need to know about. In order to sue a doctor for medical malpractice, the doctor must have been negligent in the treatment of the victim. This means that there must have been something that the doctor did which either caused or failed to prevent an injury. To win a claim for medical malpractice, the victim must prove their case based on what they would have recovered if their doctor had acted appropriately during their treatment.
